Hello everyone, so finally, I feel like I’m getting back to normal, nearly caught up with everything and I feel like I’m back into my routine again.
To start this week I have these Beautiful Drawstring Gift Bags.
I adore these and I’m so pleased with how they look.
They are a great size, and with the faceted sides, they can actually hold quite a lot.
I also shared this larger size using 3 sheets of 12 x 12, I’ve shared the measurements for this one below.
I love the big one but this smaller size is my favourite.
SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THESE GIFT BAGS
The Summer Dreams paper pad was from The Works, it has sold out online but you may still be able to get it in some stores.
The sentiment on the gift-tag is from the Card Making Magic ‘Happy Mail’ stamp set available here.
